Notes

Scope and Content:
This collection is divided into the following seven series: General; City of Tampa Bi-Racial Committee; Commission of Community Relations; Employment; Lane Bryant Annual Awards; Race Issues; Reports/Programs.  The employment series deals specifically with problems that African Americans were facing in the 1960s and early 1970s.  Many of the documents in this collection provide insight into Fowler’s role in Tampa’s desegregation.  A large portion of the documents are correspondences between committee members of the Bi-Racial Committee, the Commission of Community Relations, and community officials.  The collection also contains a large number of reports on African Americans, their lack of employment opportunities, and educational concerns.
Preferred Citation:

Biographical:
In the late 1950s, the Progress Village community was established to provide affordable housing for members of Hillsborough County, Florida’s African American population. Developed as a “model community” that would offset major displacements caused by redevelopment in predominantly black neighborhoods, Progress Village grew under the leadership of such prominent, local leaders as C. Blythe Andrews, Cody Fowler, James Hargrett, Sr., and Perry Harvey, Sr., who – along with others - comprised the original Board of Trustees for Progress Village, Inc. More than fifty years later, Progress Village still stands as a viable example of public enterprise and cooperative neighborhood development.
